Cary's of Oregon (Grants Pass, OR) makes several flavored English-style toffees. Today, Day #7 of Chocolate and Espresso Theme Week, I tasted Cary's dark chocolate espresso flavor.

The toffee was shaped into bite-sized pieces of crunchy, buttery English toffee (made with real butter and pure vanilla) and almond bits. These hearty square nuggets were enveloped in dark chocolate, and drizzled with ground coffee.

I liked the bite-sized pieces. Great for sharing with others and packaging for snacks. And I appreciated the higher-quality ingredients.

My only quibble: the tagline on the package that described the English toffee: "unique soft crunch recipe." I found biting down on these chunky little squares a bit tough. The cracking crunch was not quite ringing-in-your-ears rattling, but close to it. However, given a choice, I'd prefer a heartier crunch over a sticky, grab-your-fillings texture.
